Tracheal intubation

Tracheal intubation using the oral or, more rarely, the nasal route remains the gold standard for airway management. Conclusions

Without an intact airway, further resuscitative measures, including ventilation, are usually futile. Recognition of a compromised, or potentially compromised, airway is crucial. The airway must be established early using the techniques and aids described. Experience is required to master the use of adjuncts such as laryngeal mask airways and tracheal tubes. Once the airway has been established and oxygenation restored, its maintenance may require further intervention either with the devices described above or with more advanced techniques discussed elsewhere.
